Both psychologically spiritually to to our ego right. Yeah then your wife comes to you and says i'm i'm in charge now. What about that situation a lot of guys.

You know it's not you know. Pride has step to the side. Whenever you're doing something like this you know When the pandemic kids had to stay home too so someone had to be there anyway. It's kinda was like a curse and blessing kind of you know very cool to be there. You know we have to do whatever you can be for the girls as i just. It's bigger than just us so and it can be very isolating for anyone those go through this because even if you don't like your job or you love your job you know that's social interaction that you're missing out on the absolute can be very tough to replace. Whenever you have a six and a two year old. I don't know man. I know some workplaces where that's about the caliber of. Actually i do absolutely so you get on the program. Tell us about the last twelve months. Yeah just working really hard. I at the time. That the pandemic kid. I had been working part time because we had two kids and so just working lot.

I'm gonna take care of all become the ceo this house and we'll make who's biggest cheerleaders my parents for sure My mom was the one hit spot. Fpu years ago. When i took at our church. And so they've always been you know the for the forefront for us and I mean just each other as cheerleaders get exasperated about something and he. I mean he's just my rock. He's there for me like he picks me up like we do. I mean it sounds cheesy. We complete each other lake. It's you know. God put us together for a reason so i really feel like you know. It's just it's we've been perfect for each other assets. Just you know one of the things that we did before. Even though we were living davish we didn't. I don't personally ever spend a lot of money. I've never had a credit card my whole life. So it's you know. Just you know kind of frugal that way but we do like to eat out so that kinda took a backseat and start making everything at home from scratch. torty is from scratch at. We gotta do it. Good wholesome person with integrity and character. Does i like tacos right. Would you tell people the key to getting out of debt is i would just say sticking together. Have your person make your budget be intentional with it. you know. We read rachel's book. And i just i wondered. Why am i going to target like. What is the point of being there and spending this money you know so just. The intentionally of everything is really what helped just supporting each other. It's is. I've always had an issue with the all or nothing mentality and it's real easy to be defeated everywhere. It's like if it's not working out. It's like well we'll just do something. Different guys like that one foot in front of the other eaten elephants one bite at a time. You know so dave says. He reads the tortoise and the hare every year and every year he reads it. The the the tortoise wins every time. So what's it feel like to be debt free. It's amazing shortly afterwards.
